Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer

by Joseph Moore In reply to Microsoft Baseline Securi ...

Running tools like this Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (or HFNETCHK, that looks for missing hotfixes) require Administrator-level access in order to work properly. If you are NOT logged in with a user account that is an Administrator (a memberof the Administrators group, or a member of the Domain Admins group), then this tool will not work.
So, if this is on your own home computer, then you need to log out as the normal user you are logged in as, and log in as Administrator. If you are part of a Domain, then have a Domain Admin log in, and then run the scan.
